WHAT OUR FAMILIES ARE SAYING

“We were referred to Sweet Peas Nannies by multiple families. Jennifer and Kristy surpassed all our expectations! They worked against a short deadline and really listened to our families unique needs to find the perfect Nanny. They took away all the stress and time we would have had to put into finding a Nanny on our own. We are so thankful we found them!  Highly recommend!”

-K. McFarland 

“Sweet Peas has been a delight to work with. Finding a nanny is a huge decision which can be stressful when you don’t know where to begin. Sweet Peas takes the stress out of it. We have used them for two nanny searches and been nothing but impressed with any applicant we have received from Kristy. Kristy really cares and listens to your needs and looks for the perfect addition to your family. I have recommended Sweet Peas to friends and co-workers and highly recommend them to anyone who is looking to fill such an important position.”

-Callie Walters

“I highly recommend Sweet Peas for parents who are interested in finding the highest quality and most loving care for their children. Kristy and Jennifer excel at finding the right fit for both families and nannies. They are extremely customer focused, responsive, and diligent in finding great pairings. After trying to work through screening and recruiting on our own, it became clear we didn’t have adequate time to dedicate to that process. Finding Sweet Peas was a blessing since we were able to interview a couple quality candidates and move forward with the hiring process quickly. Sweet Peas also handled the drug screen and background checks. We have used the service twice; after our first nanny married and moved away we sought their help again and found our second nanny. Both our nannies have become part of our family and we are forever grateful to Kristy and Jennifer for being our advocates and finding such wonderful nannies for our family!”

– Oak Ridge Family

“My husband and I have family in town including two semi-retired parents but we had reached our breaking point as a two-career family, even though both boys were in preschool programs. We had hired temporary domestic help before but Sweet Peas did a great job honing in our needs and wants and helping us think about candidates. We love the candidate we hired on their recommendation. My husband, who wasn’t originally onboard with the idea of hiring nanny, now says it’s the best money we’ve ever spent.”

– Private Family with two preK boys

“Sweet Peas Nanny Agency has been such a blessing to our family and I would absolutely give them my highest recommendation! Kristy Pilant has been so helpful & has made it obvious that she works hard & takes so much into consideration to place the very best candidate with her clients. She has placed 2 nannies with our family & both have been very professional, caring, and just the right fit. Kristy has gone above & beyond to make sure we have someone to fit our specific needs & I feel so relieved that her screening process puts safety & professionalism as the highest priorities. I cannot say enough good things about Kristy & Sweet Peas!”
